    Fair Entries

    Well just got back from the county fair. I entered a mesquite NE bowl, lidded box, cedar vase and some of my mini acorn birdhouses. I got blue ribbons on all of them except one. The mini acorn birdhouses got me a Grand Champion along with best in class and show. I was tickled to death. I just entered them not thinking of winning but just some exposure as everyone goes to the fair. So thought maybe I might drum up some business. Now they are talking of taking the birdhouse to the state fair. I don't think I will be able to due to my job. May have a friend take them down for me because I couldn't afford to stay the whole week. Anyway not to bad a day.

    Woo-Hoo! Bigtime congrats, Bernie. Grand Champion, Best in Show, and Best in Class! Talk about kicking whatever and takin' names. You should do what you can to get entered into the State Fair. Your work is worthy of it.

    I agree with Ed though...we need pics, buddy! Let's see those pieces again to refresh our memories.

    I would have pictures but they won't let us have them till Saturday. They want them displayed at the fair for the week. So when I get them I will get pic's.

    Thanks for the comments. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I am going to try Vaughn to get there if possible.

    Boy Bernie, that must be a great feeling, one you have earned!

    Congrats!

    Congragulations Bernie. That has to make all of the time that you spent doing this seem worthwhile.
